ABOUT







Ellmer Stefan & Johannes Lang [Stefan Ellmer]

Stefan Ellmer is a Norwegian type designer based in Oslo. In 2014, he set up the commercial type foundry Ellmer Stefan & Johannes Lang with Johannes Lang.

Codesigner with Joakim Jansson and Dag Laska of the bespoke typeface Aker Brygge Display (2012). For an architecture magazine, he created Corvus Corax at Skin Designstudio. The Science typeface family was commissioned by Work AS.

In 2013, Stefan is in the stages of publishing Essay, a wonderful very readable angular text typeface, at Type Together. Ellmer was finally published in 2014 as Essay Text.

Other typefaces in development include Amalgam and Yorrick Tristram (a baroque typeface). He also designed the grotesque typeface family Georges. Still in 2013, Johannes Lang and Stefan Ellmer co-designed the free display typeface Brevier Viennese (Langustefonts). It is based on a Victorian typeface called Viennese by the Fann Street Foundry from 1874.

In 2014, he created Ur 1927 and writes: Ur 1927 is a digital reanimation of the original sketches by Paul Renner made for the typeface that later became Futura as part of the social-housing program Das Neue Frankfurt in 1927. Ur 1927 is not an auto-traced imitation neither an interpretation of the original source---like other revivals of pre-digital type---but an attempt to grasp the inherent design principles of the original design and the ideological impetus intended by its maker. Ur 1927 is sticking stubbornly to the sketches made in 1927---not performing any optical compensations or deviations from geometrical construction. In addition it incorporates all (!) alternative---radical even to contemporary eyes---letter shapes drawn by Renner.

Schouss Plass (2014) is an angular display typeface developed for Schous Plass, a youth café and concert hall in Grünerløkka, Oslo.

In 2014, Johannes Lang and Stefan Ellmer revived the frilly Victorian typeface Stencil Gothic originally designed by John West in 1885.

Sentralen Oslo (2016). They write: A set of 3 text and one display typefaces for the branding of a new multidisciplinary cultural site based in the old town of Oslo, Kvadraturen. The text styles are based on the former stationary of the Oslo Sparebank, which later became the foundation responsible for the redefintion of the old bank building. The display typeface is a derivate of the logotype (not shown) and is intended for use in the site's wayfinding system. These typefaces were commissioned by and developed in close collaboration with Metric Design, Oslo.

Levvel Script (2016) is a brush script based on illustrator Bjørn Rune Li's distinct handwriting style. It was commissioned by Scandinavian Design Group.

Gustav Display (2018) is an exclusive (lapidary, roam, inscriptional, wedge serif, all caps) typeface for the celebration of Gustav Vigeland's 150th birthday in 2019. Commissioned by the Vigeland Museum in Oslo, it was designed by Ellmer Stefan under the Art Direction of Anders Hofgaard (NODE Berlin Oslo), and is based on an inscription accompanying one of Vigeland's sculptures.

In 2018, Ellmer Stefan designed a custom sans typeface for Diller Scofidio + Renfro.
